There is so much to do in the Black Hills area that it is easy to overlook Rapid City (as I did). Use the town as a base for seeing: Badlands National Park; Wind Cave National Park; Mount Rushmore National Monument; Jewel Cave National Monument; Custer State Park; and maybe the nearby towns of Sturgis and Deadwood (although Sturgis is also a nice place to stay). I have since remedied this by spending some time in Rapid City in June 2015. So much to add.
